  • This museum was a very nice surprise in all the Vegas "hustle and bustle". It started with "protected parking", and then the very interesting Museum. Once we purchased the tickets in the gangster era ...  more »
  • Quite the museum-Al Capone gun, St. Valentines Day Massacre wall, etc. More than one day can be spent here. If you have interest in the mobs, this place is where you want to be. Fun.  more »

  • What a comprehensive, educational and comfortable hidden gem! Split into three levels incorporating criminal syndication history and the evolving government agencies, this place flows smoothly. Exhibits have short films, artifacts, touch screens, interactive displays and an excellent gift shop to boot. It's so interesting and varied, you forget you're learning. The staff is friendly and very well educated! Very well done!
  • Interesting set up and amazing history if you're interested in this type of stuff. Would recommend 3-4 hrs or even longer to be able to read every little thing that is posted. If you're willing to go through it without reading everything then 2 hrs should be enough though I would prefer to get my money's worth. You can then walk to Fremont ave and see old Vegas which is mentioned frequently in the museum.
  • THIS IS A MUST SEE!! First fun fact is that this museum is housed in the original Clark County Federal building. They have preserved the courtroom where much of the Mob trials we're conducted. The overall experience is amazing and the artifacts and presentation is great. This museum literally takes you on a journey from the beginning of the Mob through current day. Again I say it is a MUST see!
  • The best parts of this museum are the real and replica mob props, including weapons, clothes and government covert operations tools, but this is only 20% of the museum. The not-so-great, even frustrating, part, 80% of the museum, is all there is to read on the walls in often small print when there are dozens of other people trying to read the same parts of the walls at the same time. All the information is fascinating, but many of the rooms of this museum, except the former courtroom, are small. Once visitors pay for admission, they are herded to the top floor to start the self-paced tour from the 3rd floor to work their way back down to the ground floor. Without any pacing, unlimited visitors are in the same rooms at the same time, trying to read all the printed history on the walls. The "mob" of people in the same small rooms together made it difficult to enjoy. I gave up trying to get close enough to read anything and rushed through the museum so I could get out to get some air. To avoid the crowds, I would suggest going at opening time in the morning or near closing after 7pm. On the plus side, the restrooms were very clean.
  • A great place to learn some history of the mob. It's in an old courthouse and there are 3 floors to explore, plus your pass is good for the whole day so you don't have to go through it all at once. Parking in the lot is good for only 4 hours, however, so that's something to keep in mind.
